Season 1997-98

The desire for more European action meant the Heineken Cup went to home and away games in the pool stage boosting attendances gates in the qualifying rounds from 350,000 to almost 500,000. The five pools of four guaranteed each club a minimum of six games and the three quarter-final play-off matches all added up to a bumper 70-match tournament, with the finalists Bath and Brive meeting three times in all.

The decisive winner-takes-all third encounter came in a spectacular sell-out occasion at Stade Lescure, in Bordeaux, when the majority of the capacity crowd of 36,500 were left stunned when cup holders Brive were pipped by a point in a 19-18 thriller. Jon Callard was the BATH hero as he scored all his side's points.
